Items used included:
Vibrant watercolour paint palette.
Water spray bottle small
12" x 12" white card stock.
Imaginarium Design Chipboard: 'Peacock feathers', 'Picture of you' phrase, 'Denise's Art Deco Frame', 'Star bursts', 'Nats bubbles'
Stamp- Stampendous 'Cling Vintage Note'
Gesso and water in a squeeze bottle
Black StazOn ink
Dymo 'old manual' machine with black tape for journaling/title
Now to put all the items together-
I sprayed the paper lightly with water.
Using a brush well loaded with water I placed some watercolour to different sections of the paper on the first 1/3 of the cardstock.
I used plenty of water and 2 main blue/green colours and flicked yellow over the top of the wet paint.
When dry I flicked a little of all colours over the page.
The chipboard had been coated with white spray gesso to seal it. I used the watercolours to colour the star bursts, adding multiple layers until I was happy with the colours and effects. The frame, peacock feathers and the title were coated with Black StazOn ink.
White gesso and water were added to a fine nosed squeezy bottle and then squeezing the mix out I drew long sweeping lines back and forth over the dried watercolour paint.
The photo was placed on the stack of chipboard, paper doily, wire and flowers.
Using the Dymo labeller I printed out the title and added it to the page to finish it off.
